Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA, USA) presented its Cascadion SM clinical analyzer and range of LC-MS IVD medical devices at EUROMEDLAB 2022.

Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is considered the gold standard among vitamin D testing methods, but the technique has traditionally relied on sophisticated technology requiring specialized knowledge. The Cascadion SM clinical analyzer, equipped with a built-in 25-hydroxy vitamin D assay, automatically analyzes vitamin D2 and D3 in blood samples directly from qualified primary blood collection tubes, without the need for extensive technical expertise. Incorporating sample processing, LC separation and MS detection capabilities in a single solution, the Cascadion system is fully automated and enables load-up and walkaway sample management, eliminating the need for multiple connected components. The system offers end-to-end automation that is easy to use by any qualified laboratory personnel with minimal training, thus streamlining and optimizing the analytical process. The clinical analyzer is designed to simplify and accelerate the implementation of LC-MS/MS into routine clinical workflows.

Also on display at EUROMEDLAB 2022 was the Thermo Fisher family of LC-MS instruments for in vitro diagnostics that provides clinical labs with consistent reliable results, faster. These comprehensive, reliable LC-MS platform solutions offer greater flexibility than immunoassays, facilitate cost savings and enable clinical laboratories to achieve their productivity goals, while ensuring confidence in results of laboratory developed tests (LDTs). Thermo Fisher demonstrated the Vanquish MD HPLC which is the ideal chromatographic separations system for laboratories where analyte resolution is critical, alongside the TSQ Quantis MD Series mass spectrometer that is used by clinical diagnostic laboratories to meet routine requirements for laboratory tests. In addition, Thermo Fisher showcased the TSQ Altis MD Series mass spectrometer that is used by clinical diagnostic laboratories to address challenging analyte requirements for LDTs.
